Wow! A 7970 with only SL-DVI ports. Well, you'll need an active DP to DL-DVI adapter which would cost you over $70. Is there a reason why you want the MSI? My ASUS 7870 have DL-DVi so I'm sure their 7970 would too.

So the 7970 has x4 MiniDisplay ports which would be the high end lines for 2560x1600, and much like my ATI 5770 (2) Mini Display Ports and then 1 SL DVI output. So I can only run a 1920x1200 monitor on that port which is fine for a 3rd monitor in portrait or landscape.

You'd have to run converters on the minidisplayports to DL DVI-D much like the same thing I'm going to have to do if I get a new MacBook Pro w/ Retina and convert the thunderbolt/minidisplay port if I was to try and use a CATLEAP Q270 on it. Monoprice has them compared to the price apple charges ($99 vs $69). Kinda stinks but its fun living between standards right? The HDMI out on the new MacBook only supports 1920x1200 similarly as well so you can't use the HDMI port from what I understand either.


Interesting side note on my power supply issue, I checked it after leaving it unplugged for 24 hours and its fine now. Put it on the monitor and it powered up. Puzzling.
post #5468 of 11286

Ran my Catleap through it's paces over the weekend after getting it late last week... Stock power supply is hot, but works fine in the US. They added a little white sticker to mine to say it's fine for 110v, as the original Lodus(sp?) block only lists 190-240v range or something like that... Lowering brightness lowers heat output, and mine needed the brightness trimmed a bit anyway. Still, the block does run a bit warm, but no worse than many other bricks I've used for other devices in the past.

 

On a separate note, I did buy another 110v brick to use as a replacement, just in case, but it seems to have a defect. Not plugged into the monitor it shows a green light, all good. However, once I plug it into the Catleap, the light goes red and flashes, without giving any juice to the monitor. Looking at the pin setup on the monitor side plug, one pin is black, making it look like it was shorted out at one point, so I have to RMA it. So, I switched back to the stock brick and it still works without any issue. 

 

And yes, the stand is a little wonky, but if you have a stable desktop and don't need to move the monitor around all the time, it's just fine. 

 

As for quality, I compared the backlight bleed to my other old HP IPS panels, no different really. Off angle seems a little more noticeable on the Catleap, but head on, is just fine... I'm a glutton for punishment so I did do a bunch of dead/stuck pixel tests. I found just one, located about 2/3 down, 2/3 to the right corner. Would likely not notice it without running the tests and checking every square inch of it. So, as others have said, don't even bother looking and you'll probably never know if you have one... 

 

Oh, and this was not the pixel perfect, just a regular old cheap SE from Green-Sum... Runs great, including full access to the UEFI setup on my ASUS Gene IV-Z motherboard running of an ATI 5970.. So, if you have one of the "incompatible" 5xxx series ATI cards and a modern motherboard, don't worry, you'll be fine. If you have an old BIOS based setup, just keep and old lcd around, just in case, but once you are up and running, you'll be fine. 

 

As for performance, I keep AA off, and crank the rest of the settings up, and am quite happy. With this pixel pitch and a reasonable viewing distance, no AA is not a big deal. 

 

Anyway, happy customer... Now to get a new backup power supply, just in case. ;)

For those who are looking for adapters and cables, I've bought most of my display adapters or converters here. I hope OP can add this to the OP thread for future references.

I'm assuming he wants the MSI card because it's very easily one of the best graphics cards out there right now. If the MSI won't work, I'd recommend the Gigabyte with windforce. I have one, and I can tell you that you won't be disappointed.
